Its nice to see people are eager to get involved in this!
Firstly, I'd like to just state that opentarget
was the guy who originally suggested this and want to make it clear that it is not my intention to steal his thunder/idea by posting this "getting things rolling" thread! I'm just an impatient person!
Secondly, I think its too early for people to be writing detailed synopsises! Wait until Hirazi/owei get the new forum section set up! I think at the beginning we should just be posting single sentence snippets of ideas/concepts, or even single events that might fit into the broader picture.
It would be nice to do this as democratically as possible, but democracy has its limits as we all know! Like any job, we're not going to have everything our own way. Even if you're not keen on the story, idea or concept it doesn't mean you can't muck in on creating some assets or animating a shot. It's still going to be fun and you'll have something you can stick on your CV/portfolio/showreel.
I think before we get carried away with ideas we need to compile a list of who will be interested in contributing, regardless
of the storyline/subject matter and what you'd like to do (modelling, design, animation, rendering, etc). We won't hold you to it (well, we might, lol) but it would be nice to see what the numbers are.
So stand up and be counted!!I'm In.
(As they say in the Dragon's Den) Rigging, Animation, modelling, texturing. Most stuff.
